Hypertension Otherwise known as ‘high blood pressure’, hypertension is a commonly occurring cardiovascular condition that accounts for many deaths each year, usually due to complications affecting the various blood vessels of the body. It is present when the blood pressure is recorded as persistently higher than usual, the accepted level being above 140/90. However, other factors are able to cause a raised systolic pressure above 140, including increasing age as well as anxiety, so a raised diastolic pressure above 90 is more relevant in the diagnosis of hypertension.
